I want to start this column by saying I actually like Lexington Steele

I have met him and found him to be an educated and agreeable fellow. I could and probably should crack on his choice of last names, I mean is he kin to Colt, Selena, Jeremy, Sydney, Brandon, Nicholas, Greg and countless others who have adopted that name…it’s lame…. but I digress. Lexington, in his current column for www.avninsider.com wants to know among other things why Black History month is the shortest month of the year. Lets look at some of his column:

“Why is Black History Month the shortest month of the year? Who determined February to be the month? And was this by design or circumstance?”

I have a fundamental problem with this whole black history month nonsense, to paraphrase Dr. Martin Luther King “I have a dream that I will one day live in a nation where Americans who have done great things will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”. Why do we need “Black history month” at all? How about AMERICAN HISTORY month, when we celebrate the great things that all Americans have contributed to mankind?

Lex continues to give his version of the discovery of North America and the history of slavery blah blah blah… What is next Lex? You going to ask for forty acres and a fucking mule? If you really know history you know we are ALL descendants of slaves. Every race on earth has at one time been exploited by another it is now time to officially get over it. So Lex, when you got your degrees from Syracuse, did you work hard and earn them? Or did they bestow them upon you because you are black? You earned them didn’t you? Fucking A you did. So why do you want to cheapen that accomplishments? You see Lex in America today it is all about individual responsibility, if you choose not to get a good education don’t blame me, you now have the same opportunities that I do. If you end up in jail for whatever reason it isn’t the fault of anyone but you, you made the choice my friend, society didn’t make it for you.

Then at the very end Lex has this to say, and this is what REALLY pisses me off:

In summation, I find myself in a peculiar circumstance. While I actively celebrate Black History Month 365 days a year, I find myself not that much unlike the slaves and slave traders of some 400 years ago. I participate in the most heinous of ALL trades- THE BUYING AND SELLING OF HUMAN FLESH. I trade my own flesh for monetary compensation and I sell the flesh of others for the same. For this I am not proud. As February comes to a close, I ask myself: what will be MY contribution to the proud history of Blacks in America? Will it be a celebrated Legacy of Lust as Americas’ top male sex performer or the self-deprecating participation in the MODERN DAY SLAVE TRADE known as…. American Pornography.

OK Lex, this business has enough apologists trying to make themselves feel better about making porn by calling it some form of “art”. If you don’t like what you are doing and if you aren’t proud of it drag your ass back to Syracuse and don’t let Jim South’s door hit you in the fucking ass. I am proud of what I do, I make good old fashioned porn, I don’t exploit anyone any more than General Motors does. To think just last month you went on about how wrong it is for girls in this business to choose NOT to work with a black man, fuck you, the last time I looked up the word slavery it mentioned something about not being free. So why is it Serenity can’t exercise her freedom to choose not to work with you, or me, or Ron Jeremy?

Come Lex, you are an educated fellow and you would make a fine American, knock the fucking chip off your shoulder and join us.
